Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Thursday announced an extension of the state’s stay-at-home order until the end of May. The governor plans to sign that executive order next week.
The extended order includes some loosening of regulations for state parks and golf courses, and will allow businesses not deemed “essential” to sell products online, for carryout or delivery. Some elective surgeries will also be allowed.
It will also include a requirement for people to wear a face covering or a mask when in a public place where they can’t maintain a 6-foot social distance beginning May 1.
